Advice from Farai:

Learning can be challenging, but worthwhile when you can appreciate the real life implications and applications of what you are studying.  Lean into the confusion!

Raiyyan is a Sophomore Neuroscience major.

 

Advice from Raiyyan:

Have a weekly schedule for each of your classes. This schedule should include a precursory glance at material (skimming a textbook chapter for key vocab/looking at learning outcomes), attending lecture (or viewing a prerecorded lecture/doing assigned reading), and then doing practice problems or flashcards of some kind depending on the class. Taking a methodical approach to learning content that has you pass over the material multiple times makes it such that you've already done most of the work when it is time to begin studying for an exam.

Advice from Liany:

Don't be afraid to fail in low stakes situations! Learning how to be wrong and turning it into something constructive is the key to progress.

Zoom etiquette suggestions:

1. Be sure to mute your mic whenever you are not speaking.

2. Consider muting your video if you are completing a non-Zoom related task.

3. Close unneeded applications on your computer to keep the video optimally functioning.

4. You might want to use a headset with an external mic for best hearing and speaking capabilities.

5. When you are speaking, let others know that you are finished.

6. If you want to speak, use the “raise hand” feature that is available at the bottom center of your screen.
 
7. You can ask questions using the “Chat” feature on the bottom and center of your screen.
 
8. Be mindful of your background lighting. 
 
9. Be sure that there is nothing visually distracting.
 
10. Remember to sign out or “leave the meeting” when the session is finished.
